2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC

Bright, fresh and reasonably concentrated sauvignon blanc with capsicum, lemongrass, gooseberry, wet stone, mineral and subtle tropical fruit flavours. Impressive purity and length, this high energy wine could develop well in bottle. Drink 2017 to 2021.

2017 SAUVIGNON BLANC

Brilliant, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is very fresh with intense, penetrating aromas of gooseberries, greengages and green stonefruits, entwined with dark herbs, unfolding white and yellow floral notes and subtle, complexing mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate possesses sweet and luscious flavours of gooseberries, nectarines and green stonefruits with fresh herbs and suggestions of thirst-quenching minerals. The mouthfeel is brisk with crisp acidity, and the palate flows along a soft and very fine-textured line with excellent underlying energy and vitality. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of stonefruits, gooseberries and herbs. This is an elegant and intensely concentrated luscious green stonefruited Sauvignon Blanc with a brisk palate and soft, fine-textured linearity. Match with seafood and Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Hand-picked fruit from estate vineyards, WBP and partially indigenous yeast fermented to 12.5% alc. and 3.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 2-3 months in tank. Certified BioGro organic.
